I've decided to join a fun Photography Scavenger Hunt. Maria Ontivero has been doing it for several years now. She gives a lits of 21 subjects that you need to find and photograph before the end of September (well, the equinox). You can link up with a blog or follow on Facebook, or even load photos on a Flickr account.
So, without any further ado, here's this year's lists:
1. A "wild heart" - a naturally occurring heart (like the rock above, but it doesn't have to be a rock)
2. A footprint or pawprint
3. A skeleton, bone or x-ray
4. A book or magazine read during 2016
5. A porch or deck
6. A camper (caravan)
7. A family gathering
8. A drawing, art project, artistic photograph, scrapbook page, greeting card, or art journal page created by you.
9. Someone playing with, in, or around water.
10. A bicycle
11. Fresh produce
12. A window
13. The moon
14. A buffet of food
15. A team logo
16. A map showing a trip taken during the time period
18. A supermarket cart, basket or trolley full of groceries
19. A seasonal cocktail or beverage
20. Someone laughing
21. A photograph of you with a newspaper or calendar page from the time period covered in the Hunt. Note: you may not use a substitute for this item.
Alternatives - if you're having trouble finding any of the above, you may substitute from this list (but you may not substitute for item #21):
alternative 1: a lighthouse
alternative 2: a baby (human or animal)
#2 - A paw print.
These are the paw prints of our cat Precious in the cement by the front door. We still haven't tiled that part.... (will we ever?)
#18 - a supermarket trolley with shopping.
This is our trolley at Lidls in Baza.
#7 - A family gathering.
This was of course my mum's 92nd birthday. Here she is with the birthday cake on our terrace. From left to right: me, my sister, my hubby and my brother in law.
#9 - Someone playing in or by water
. That someone is me in a jacuzzi! Friends of ours in the village have one in their garden. Great fun!
#14 - a buffet of food
Here in rural Spain they don't do many buffets. When there is a party or a fiesta, or any get-to-gether they make a paella. Paella is a traditional rice dish which can contain meat or seafood or both. The yellow color comes from the saffron (strands of a particular crocus flower). Here is my dear hubby (with hat) getting our portion at the village fiesta (the first weekend in June).
This is as far as I got with the photos. I don't want to do them all in one month, so I am spreading them out a bit and hope I will get the heart eventually.
I am enjoying seeing other people's photos.
Greetings from Spain,
